Protesters in the Mission District blocked tech buses for nearly an hour this morning in San Francisco, tossing scooters into the street to waylay the commuters. The activists, blocking buses at the intersection of 24th and Valencia streets, set off smoke bombs, chanted “we are unstoppable, another world is possible,” among other things.
This isn’t the first time activists have done things like this. In 2013 and 2014, people protested soaring housing prices, gentrification and economic inequality stood in the way of the tech buses to disrupt service.
I understand the economic differences and issues for sure that make it difficult here in the bay. But, I definitely don't think any type of violence is the answer. More on the story here.
